Windows Virtual Desktop metadata now available in West Europe #WVD #Azop #Azure #VDI #CloudComputing #metadata   Leave a comment


When Creating a new windows virtual desktop I noticed that the meta locations are also available in europe.

When creating a new WVD host pool you can select the Metadata location. this is a great option as many customers ask me why is this in a non europe location, and can this be changed.

Well there are now 2 europe locations


Creating a new Host pool



An overview from the Host pools and now also one in europe


Metadata will be stored in Azure geography associated with (Europe) West Europe

How ever not everything is updated yet

Changing the Host pool location with the Update-azwvdhostpool is not possible



The –location option is not a valid option.



It is nice to see the meta data is stored in europe and with this Windows virtual desktop is getting better and better all the time.
